Deriving Exact Predictions From the Cascade Model

  title={Deriving Exact Predictions From the Cascade Model},
  author={F. Gregory Ashby},
McClelland's (1979) cascade model is investigated, and it is shown that the model does not have a well-defined reaction time (RT) distribution function because it always predicts a nonzero probability that a response never occurs. By conditioning on the event that a response does occur, RT density and distribution functions are derived, thus allowing most RT statistics to be computed directly and eliminating the need for computer simulations. Using these results, an investigation of the model… CONTINUE READING
